Supplanting Saxon

Keedy and Bittinger’s algebra texts do a better job of presenting algebra than Saxon. K&B give better explanations and integrations of mathematical concepts and methods — and hence are more focused on theory than Saxon. K&B provide much better and many more “applications” of the math and provide more exercises to drive a concept/method home — and they give you the freedom to do ten exercises or so, and come back to the section every week for five or ten more exercises so that you can maintain and build fluency throughout the year; whereas Saxon forces you to follow their pedagogy. Update (11-6-09, 10 AM): Corrected a misspelling: flueny to fluency.
